San Andrés Things to Do

  • Take a tour

    The tours aren't very long, it is a small Island and they will show you the main sights, Cptn Morgan's cave, The blow hole, The natural Pool, The view from the Highest point on the Island, and generally tours of Colonial houses. It's a good way to get a feel for the place, see beautiful sights and at some of the stops they might have local music or...

  • A Must Do, Aquarium Cay

    Not to be confused with the Decameron Aquarium, The Aquarium Cay is a little Island off San Andres that attrackts a huge variaty of fish. This is the easiest snorkeling and fish watching I've ever done. Even if you don't snorkel, hell, even if you don't swim, you can wade out into the water, use swimming goggles and see an amazing variaty of fish....

  • Natural Pool

    The area known as the Natural pool has water so clear that you can look fown from the cliffs above and clearly see fish swiming under 10 FT of water. If you go bring your bathing suit. You can jupm in from about 10 or 15 feet up and see a ton of fish attrackted by bread crumbs convieniently made avalible on the path to the cliffs.

  • Jonny Cay

    Jonney Cay has berhaps the most perfect beaches I've been to. The Sand is soft, White Coral sand that doesn't heat up in the sun. There are palm treas just off the beach for shade and Coconut drinks and grilled food avalible from shacks on the Island. Just out to sea the beach turns into interesting rock and coral formations that hide very cool...

  • The Beach at Isleno

    While the Aquarium might be the bedst Decameron Hotel, the Isleno has the best beach. Luckly, if you stay at one you are welcome at them all and anyway the beach in front is public. It has the nice long cresent shape and soft white coral sand that doesn't heat up like other sand. Dead center in front of the Beach is Jonney Cay, looking like such a...

  • Johnny Cay

    Simply amazing, probably the best beach on the entire island! It's a short boat ride past the barrier reef, then a short ride you arrive. I spent the whole day there, relaxing and enjoying the beach. There's not much to really see there, but in comparison to San Andres, it's a great contrast!

The pizzas are to die for and the service is enjoyable (Say hello to Bruno for me). Do go here when you are in San Andres Of course the Spag Carbonara

  • The Best of the Decameron

    Specializing in Seafood but with other options as well, La Bruja is the best of the Decameron resturants. This place manages to feel like a fine dining resturant, while many at Decameron can have a cafeteria feel. I would recomend it to anyone staying at the resorts, I'm not sure if people from other hotels can pay to go. The Resturant is out in...

    To get around San Andres, your feet or a scooter will do fine but to get over to Jonney Cay or Aquarium Cay you'll need a boat. Come out of the Decameron Aquarium Take a left and you'll come to a boat dock that can get you there.

San Andrés Tourist Traps

  • The Blow Hole

    Another hole everyone looks into. I'm acctually told that this is cool when the tide is right. The Blow hole is the end of a tunel that runs from the Ocean and up to the surface about 100 yards away. Whern the waves hit right the water flows through the hole and explodes with a huge gyser effect, powerful enough to take a tube top right off a...

  • Morgan's cave

    A must see on all the little tours of the Island this hole in the ground is realy just a hole in the ground. As the tourist file past and get eaten my mosquitos I wondered what the draw was to this flooded cave. The Answer is in the mystique of Pirates. While there is no reall evidence that Moprgan came to this cave, and only slim evidence that...
